Welcome to the Latin America and Caribbean Section

The Latin America and Caribbean Section (formerly the Austral and Neotropical American (ANA) Section) was formed in 2003 to unite conservation efforts in Central and South America. As part of the Society for Conservation Biology, the Section is able to pull on the influence and abilities of it's members to facilitate efforts in this region.


We are very happy to announce the first SCB Section Scholarship Opportunity available to LACA Section members in support of attending the ICCB Meeting.  Please circulate this as widely as possible so as to encourage applications while the the call for Abstracts is still open.
